“From the Heart” teaching by Drs. Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12
This great land of the United States of America was founded because of man’s desire to be free and to have religious freedom. In this land, one can have a dream and can see that dream become a reality, regardless of race, color or creed. This is what America stands for. It is a nation founded by pioneers who had to brave the first winter and the ruggedness of this land to establish what is still known as the greatest country on the face of the earth.
God called us to America and opened the door for us to come here in 1987. He told us that just as America had sown missionaries into the nations of the world over the last two hundred years, so He was going to raise people up from other nations and send them to the United States. He told us to come and stir up the churches and tell them to get ready for the coming revival. Thank God that not only did He tell us to get ready for revival, but He also sent us a revival! We have an overwhelming desire to see America saved and changed by the power of God and filled with the fires of revival. That is what motivates us, compels and constrains us. We count it a great privilege to be called as missionaries to the U.S.A. We have made America our home and are proud to be Americans – living in the land of opportunity, choosing to be pioneers, and braving new frontiers.
Let us share with you a few bold statements that have been made about America and about the things that make her such a great nation and that reflect the way we feel about her.
Bring me men to match my mountains. Bring me men to match my plains.
MEN WITH EMPIRES IN THEIR PURPOSE AND NEW ERAS IN THEIR BRAINS.
– Sam Walter Foss
America has been settled by people of all nations. All nations may claim her for their own. We are not a narrow tribe of men. No, our blood is made as the flood of the Amazon, made up of a thousand noble currents all pouring into one. We are not a nation, so much as a world.
– Herman Melville
You who have been born in America I wish I could make you understand what it is like to not have been born an American, not to have been an American all of your life, and then suddenly with the words of a man in flowing robes, for that moment and forever after, one moment you belong with your Fathers to a million yesterdays, the next you belong to America to a million unborn tomorrows.
– George Magar Mardikian
Throughout the centuries there were men who took the first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their own vision.
– Ayn Rand
What kind of a man would live where there is no daring? I don’t believe in taking foolish chances, but nothing can be accomplished without taking any chance at all.
– Charles Augustus Lindbergh
Our way of living together in America is a strong but delicate fabric. It is made up of many threads that have been woven over many centuries, by the patience and sacrifice of countless liberty loving men and women.
– Wendall Lewis Willkie
AMERICA by Dr Rodney M. Howard-Browne.
From the harbor brightly shining, the lady her beacon beams
To all those tired and weary, come to freedom’s dream
And now that freedom threatened, revival her only hope
America your time has come, to fulfill your heavenly goal
From the grandeur of Alaska, to the blue of the Florida Keys
From the Aloha of the Islands, to Maine it’s plain to see
Fifty nations, it seems to fill your shores, as weary travelers come
To seek the joy that freedom brings, and to bask beneath your sun
The cry my heart desires, as one born out of due time
The burning cry of revival, from one of your newest sons.
America, America, may your Eagle soar again
High above the clouds of darkness, back into His glory once again.
